down the volume and dirty -- on your tv. in today's inaugural, you'll hear a lot from senator schumer. here he is explaining his role in today's inauguration. >> the hardest part is trying to make sure everybody, there will be a huge crowd, not as big as four years ago, but a huge crowd, they get to their places, their seeds or standing places. as you know, there were big problems four years ago, not the fault of the committee, but of some people. we're trying to deal with huge numbers of people. we have done a couple of things -- we are using an iphone at -- app that will tell the on where they are and where the best route to go to, taking into account lines and everything, to get to their seat. people waited in line for hours, and when they got to the gate, they were told they were at the wrong date. that delayed some things. we're building a temporary cell phone towers on the mall. people can call in if they get lost or they are separated. we also have hundreds of volunteers will be scattered not only on the mall, a mile or two from it and ask people, but me see your ticket, you go
was honored to work with that group, along with senator pryor and senator schumer, with senator barrasso, senator alexander and our former colleague, senator kyl, and we sat for hours debating. it was very educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that you could be in your home state and offer an objection, a bill could be brought to a standstill. that's n
schumer from new york who helped me in 1993 by headlining, or i should say leading the effort in the house of representatives which was successful. senators blumenthal and chris murphy, distinguished senators from connecticut who know first-hand about sexual weapons. you will hear from congresswoman mccarthy from new york. as well as congressman ed perlmutter from colorado who represents aurora. also congresswoman esty who respects newtown. you will hear from commissioner charles ramsey of the philadelphia police department, the current president of the major police chiefs association who will speak about the display of weapons you see to my left. finally, we will hear from victims of recent mass shootings. i would like to recognize supporters who are here today. on the risers behind me we have police officers from several departments and i so thank you for joining us today. neighborhood shootings for far too long. enough is enough. everyone in this city seem to live in terror of the gun lobby. i believe the gun lobby is no match for the cross lobby especially when we stand together as peo
i've been honored to join chuck schumer of new york and bob menendez of new jersey. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from
courtesy of senator chuck schumer who is over seeing the luncheon. they have grilled bison on the menu and apple pie. they have a nice lunch prepared for them. then it's more partying. they've been doing that all weekend. that continues this evening. the commander in chief ball is later on this evening. >> i have to ask your opinion. everybody is weighing in. are you a fan of the first lady's new hairdo? >> reporter: i love it. i love the bangs. i don't know if i'll do that. she looks great. i'm for bangs. i'm team bangs. >> thank you, renee. you read my mind. we'll have more on our inauguration coverage in a few minutes. right now let's look at weather and traffic. >>> good morning. it's clear out there. but it's cold. we're looking live outside at our mount tam cam. we are still in the upper 20s currently in santa rosa, 40 in vallejo. mild start in downtown san francisco at 46 degrees. you will see by 8:00 a.m. most of us will be sitting pretty in the 40s. 30s along the delta. by lunch all of that green starts to fill in on the screen. we'll see 60s. temperatures will continue to cli
:30 eastern standard time, in just about 10 minutes, with opening remarks from senator charles schumer. at 11:35 myrlie evers-williams will give the indication. then the vice presidential oath will be administered by justice sotomayor. at noon, the inaugural address and the inaugural poem by richard blanco. at 12:30, the benediction. as we speak, president obama is about to step outside onto the west front of the capital. we are joined by clarence lusane, author of "the black history of the white house." professor at american university here in washington, d.c., professor of international relations. this book goes beyond the white house. it also talks about the capital, talks about those who built these institutions, physically. many of them enslaved. >> this is an important history. in fact, the capitol has now demolished the slave labor that went into building that building. there are two plaques, one in the main hallway, one on the house side. there is nothing in the white house that a knowledge as that. if you go on a tour, now self- guided, you can go through the blue room, the other imp
are joining the democrats chuck schumer and bennett to introduce a set of principles they want to guide immigration legislation as it moves through congress. here's what the four basics of this proposal look like. first create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. contingent on meeting border security metrics. changes the system in a way that helps our economy. set up a verification program and overhaul the system for letting future workers into the united states. the goal is to have legislation drafted by the end of march. >>> the president's going to travel to vegas tomorrow and that is where he will speak publicly on his plans to move immigration reform and make that an immediate priority. of course, he's also moving on gun violence at the same time. so he's going to have to work at those paths simultaneously. we can attribute the new republican willingness to go along with republican reform to the republicans losing seven out of ten hispanic votes in november. mccain and company have some selling to do. they need to convince their colleagues their
will decrease. in fact democratic senator chuck schumer already suggesting that taxes may need to go up again to pay for all those bills and all that spending. stephen hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard", and fox news contributor has been on this. steve, good morning to you. how are you doing, post inauguration day? >> doing well. bill: give us a sense about what we can expect to happen in your town next. >> well, i think very little. you're looking at a spending, spending trend that is unlikely to change anytime soon. we've already seen this, hints of this in the early stages of this battle with the fiscal cliff and the discussions over the debt ceiling. i think we saw in the president's speech yesterday an unwillingness to do anything significant to change the trajectory of u.s. debt the president just doesn't seem that interested in the issue. bill: you wrote this morning, "the weekly standard", obama doesn't care. that is the sentence, i'm reading right there. you look at the debt, the way even the white house projection for 2016 is extraordinary. will be at 21 trillion up from the 16
. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. sessions: i was pleased to hear a few days ago senator schumer said that we'd have a budget in the senate. it's been now 1,370 about, give or take a few days, since we've had a budget in the senate, even though plain statutory law requires the senate to have a budget. and now senator murray has followed up yesterday with a quote saying that the senate will -- today, i believe, said we'll again return to regular order and move a budget resolution through the committee and to the senate floor. so the budget committee has not been meeting, has not been doing its duty. as the ranking republican on the budget committee, i've been aghast, really, at the process and have talked about it now for over a thousand days. and so this will be a good step. my colleagues would like to suggest somehow that, well, they decided to do this out of the goodness of their heart and this is the right thing, and on their own they've just decided. but i think the american people have had a bellyful of this. the united states house has repeatedly passed budgets. the senate
the senate hasn't passed in four year. chuck schumer yesterday on "meet the press" made the announcements that of course democrats would pass a budget this year. if you believe the pressure is not getting to him, then you're not watching. i think the pressure is getting to him. for chuck shumer to say on national tv they're going to pass a budget anyway tells you that the strategy might be working. however, your question is very valid. because i have those same concerns. they have caved every single time, in the last two years, and i have made it very explicit to them that i am with them on this issue because i believe their statements that they're not going to cave again but if they cave again, they're going to have -- they're going to have some problems in the house. they're going to have -- because there's a large number of members of the house, republican house members, who are very dissatisfied with what's happening. and they're believing that the leadership is changing, their gentleman ji, they're changing their negotiation tactics. i'm just optimistic. like i said before. but i thi
they will put forward a budget proposal, chuck schumer and patty murray and others are saying there will be new revenue in it. talk to mitch mcconnell said it's settled based on the raising of rates from the fiscal cliff deal, so there are some real divisions. and monday seems like a long, long time ago already. >> it certainly does. >> joe? >> yeah, mike. >> pick up on sam stein's point about immigration. today is a red-letter day on that issue. two signal events. one in today's "wall street journal," jeb bush, former florida governor, calls for comprehensive immigration reform. that's what the president wants. that's what democrats are pushing for and what republicans are resisting. jeb bush, one of the most powerful voices in the party, said they should go the president's way on that. fix it in a big bill. second, sam stein's colleague, john war, points out on huff post that marco rubio, florida senator, is very smartly trying to change the vocabulary of this debate, detoxify the term amnesty which has allowed talk radio, conservatives to dismiss almost any move on immigration. he's saying w
, these senators, these include some of the biggest players on the democratic side. senator schumer, senator durbin, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sad
cain, marco rubio, jeff flake, lindsey graham, the democrats, chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael benn bennet, robert menendez. probably the most controversial part will be all of these folks here in this country illegally under this proposal, should it pass, would not be asked to leave the country. they would have a path to citizenship, a path to being legal and that, of course, the devil is going to be in the details on this. but that is going to be the test, whether conservative republicans who have been against this for a long time, whether they can sign on to it. >> we'll get a chance to listen to what the president has to say on this, as i mentioned, tomorrow in las vegas. chuck todd in washington. thank you very much. >> you got it. >>> let's check in with natalie morales with the days top stories. >> good morning, savannah and matt. >>> violence raging on the streets of cairo for the fifth straight day this morning. eamon . >> reporter: clashes taking place between protesters and police, as you mention ed, for the fifth straight day. all weekend long, intense fighting in the city of a
